The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) and the City of Los Angeles announced today the launch of HistoricPlacesLA, the first online information and management system specifically created to inventory, map and describe Los Angeles’ significant cultural resources. The system will be an important tool for protecting and preserving the character of Los Angeles’ distinctive neighborhoods as the city continues to grow and change.

HistoricPlacesLA showcases the diversity of cultural resources in Los Angeles, including places of social importance, architecturally significant buildings, historic districts, bridges, parks, gardens and streetscapes. This inventory can be accessed online by anyone interested in Los Angeles’ cultural resources – including policymakers, property owners, developers, visitors, students, Los Angeles history and architecture enthusiasts, and other stakeholders.
